Nail them to a peice of plywood flesh side up, cover liberally with salt, then tilt the plywood in an angle and let it dry . IT WILL DRIP so put it somewhere where grease on the floor will not hurt, also when it is dry do not let them get wet.
Make sure that the salt you use DOES NOT CONTAIN IODINE!
